PCR—During October, a quarter of a million people have made a half million visits to this website. These are only the visits to this website. The number does not include the visits to my columns carried on scores of other websites both in English and in Foreign translation where my writings are republished. Yet, in the past two days as of 4pm today, only 450 people have signed the petition to free Julian Assange from his unlawful imprisonment that is posted on my website. Surely my readers can do better than that.

ANGEL GUERRA CABRERA—Moreno, unconstitutionally, decreed a state of exception for 60 days and, under its protection, militarized the country, established a curfew in various places and sectors, used violence, even against the expression of ideas other than neoliberal ones, which explains the censorship and persecution of journalists and media, as in the case of Universal Pichincha radio.

The Grayzone’s Aaron Maté and Guest Jefferson Morley provide a textbook example of how an honest political debate should be conducted. Note that it’s clear both sides are highly articulate and intelligent, able to push their viewpoints with clarity and conviction. Still, cogent as Morley is, he keeps talking about “Putin’s interests”, a rather sinister spin on the phrasing, when in reality we are talking about Russia’s interests. After listening to this exchange, what’s your position?
BRYAN DYNE—The political dead end of the climate protests is also expressed by the endorsement of the current round of “strikes” by 3,024 companies, who in response to actual workers’ strikes would respond with court injunctions, mass firings, and brutal violence. In the case of the climate “strikes,” however, they are hoping that by pasting on a “green” label, they can dissipate the demonstrations and turn the millions of youth and workers away from a struggle against capitalism.

THE SAKER—I think that I made my opinion about Trump pretty clear, yet I also have to repeat that all these “climbdowns” by Trump are, just by themselves, a good enough reason to justify a vote for Trump. Simply put; since Trump came to power we saw a lot of hubris, nonsense, ignorance and stupidity. But we did NOT see a war, especially not a major one. I will never be able to prove that, but I strongly believe that if Hillary had won, the Middle-East would have already exploded (most likely after a US attempt at imposing a no-fly zone over Syria).
